Welcome to the magical and enchanting world of Begonias.
Am writing this blog while travelling in Gorgeous Jodhpur, Rajasthan.
Staying at the charming heritage Ranbanka Palace of which I will post on later in my blog http://www.travelwithmukul.wordpress.com, I remembered these gorgeous Begonias from Hilly Mussoorie.
If you observe the featured image you will see two distinct kind of flowers on the same plant
The JW Marriot at Mussoorie and the Rankbanka Palace at Jodhpur are two hotels at two dramatically different locations but in the same country.
The Begonias were photographed at JW Marriot and being written about from the heritage hotel THE RANBANKA PALACE, one is located in the Himalayas and the other borders THE THAR DESERT.
The featured image and the picture above are both Begonias but dramatically different as well. Read on as I uncover the secret.
One is radiant like the Sun and the other blushes into a shade of pink with the slightest compliment.
If you see the picture below and the featured image you will see one flower with numerous yellow sepals. ( yes they are faux petals) and the others with a simple single row of yellow sepals.
Begonias have unisexual flowers, means the male and female flowers are different and distinct but grow on the same plant. Can you identify which is male and which female ?
Thanks to the duo,Mike Canning and The MidWestern Girl ( fellow bloggers) that these gorgeous flowers were identified. ( do check out my blog THE ORANGE FLOWER)
Did you notice all is a TALE OF TWO.
